HONG KONG, March 1 (Reuters) - Property developer C C Land Holdings Ltd said on Wednesday it was in “advanced discussions” regarding a potential acquisition of Leadenhall Building in London.
No formal agreement has been reached, the Hong Kong-based company said in a filing to the Hong Kong bourse. It gave no further details.
The Financial Times has reported that C C Land is in talks to buy the building for one billion pounds ($1.24 billion).
The Leadenhall Building is also known as “The Cheesegrater” on account of its sloping shape.
The building comprises 610,000 square feet of office and retail space over 45 floors. ($1 = 0.8083 pounds) (Reporting by Donny Kwok; Editing by Stephen Coates)
